Left-wing Dem backs McMaster [UPDATED: Media Matters weighs in]
At Power Line
Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, voiced his support for H.R. McMaster today. He attributed criticism of the national security adviser to the Russians. “They may not like his policies, what he’s advocating with the administration, or they may just be seeking to sow further discord among Trump administration officials, feeling that that would weaken the administration,” he opined.
Schiff should know about trying to weaken the Trump administration. If he had his way, President Trump would be impeached.
It’s probable that the Russians don’t like some of what McMaster is advocating — e.g., U.S. involvement in Syria. However, of the people I know who are criticizing McMaster, none is Russian and to my knowledge none sympathizes with Russia.
